Fifth Estate Forum at the Wheeler Centre

The Chief of Army, Lieutenant General David Morrison shared his views and initiatives on the culture and values within the Army, at the Fifth Estate Forum at the Wheeler Centre on Tuesday, 12 June 2012.

The discussion with Australian's foreign affairs analyst Greg Sheridan was moderated by broadcaster, journalist and anthropologist Sally Warhaft. Exploring the role of Australia’s Defence Force in the 21st century, Lieutenant General Morrison also championed the need to increase the diversity within the Army population, with a particular emphasis on increasing the participation of women in Army, and took this opportunity to flag his intention to increase the number of women in Army by 600 within his remaining tenure of two years.
